A unique dining experience

Join us for a unique, "casual-yet-classy" dining experience in Historic Midway - the Heart of Kentucky Horse Country! Our traditional setting belies the fact that we offer a new-fangled approach to dining. The Brown Barrel's menu includes a wide variety of traditional options like fresh seafood and high quality steaks, but we also get creative, regularly offering cutting edge dishes and daily specials. The menu only says so much....

Meanwhile, Blind Harry's - who's mahogany bar came from the famous Springs Inn in Lexington - serves virtually all brands of Kentucky bourbon, a wide range of wines and mixed drinks of your choosing. We also sell package goods and offer a "grab-n-go" menu for those who are on the run.

We're OPEN for dine-in and patio seating
Mon-Sat from 11 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. & Sundays from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.

We are exercising social distancing both inside and out. You also may pickup your meal or have it delivered. Order by phone or click here to order online!
